The young people today have opportunities that many in the past did not have - access to the Internet, social media and computers for example. In fact, with access to the Internet and technology comes lots of opportunities too. There are many ways to use the internet to improve your lives.

Here are three powerful ways to bring out the best in you. Say no to the wasted and lazy times. Starve your distraction. Feed your focus. Start with these and you'll position yourself in a comfortable position to win after school life.

1. Read
Picking up a book is the hard part. When you have actually picked up the book and read it, you would not want to put it down. That is where the adventure starts.

You go on new and exciting adventures every time you read. Challenge yourself to read one or two books every term. 

2. Write
One way to showcase your creativity is to write. Writing is a skill not many people develop early. It takes time and effort to stitch together sentences, paragraphs and articles. Like many things, developing writing skill needs practice. 

Use Social Media and free blogs and be creative. Avoid slang. Write in full sentences. Write about things you are *passionate* about. Your passion will bring the best out of you. You'll enjoy every moment of writing for a long time.

Your first true writing will not be the final. You'll go on and create amazing and inspiring work. So start now. Find out about how to Create a Blog here.

3. Make money
Learn how to make money early. If you know how to make money at Secondary School or uni and perfect the skill at doing it, you'll go on to becoming a successful person after school.

In fact, you do not have to work for someone else. Many people start early at school or uni and become successful along the way. 

Have you heard of the common saying 'kill two birds with one stone'? This is it - you do something to make money and develop your life-skills while doing it. 

Some examples of making money online you are still at the school include the followng start-ups like:

1. Blogging (and to develop your writing skills) 
2. Maths or English Tuition (develop your numeracy and literacy skills)
3. Social Media Marketing and Promotion agents (develop your social media skills and put the time you spend on social media to something useful)
4. Website/Wordpress developer (develop your creativity)
5. YouTuber (create trending and viral YouTube clips)

You can, actually, make money out of the 5 examples presented to you above. Students who are great with the use of the Internet and technology can do well in these areas. 

Why start now?

Internet penetration in Papua New Guinea is better than it was 10 years ago. Some insiders believe that that the mobile coverage in Papua New Guinea for both bmobile/Telkom PNG and Digicel combined is over 95%. 

Recent talks of building a high-speed broadband facility in and around Papua New Guinea is promising. So how can young Papua New Guineans be part of this revolution? The answer is simple - get on the bandwagon before you are left behind. 

If you - a Secondary or Uni student - don't do it now, someone else will do it. Start now while the Internet market in Papua New Guinea is unsaturated.

Create your future

Only you can prepare yourself for life after school. Read. Write. Learn how to make money. Do all three and you'll come out prepared to face real life.
